Is Beetroot an Aphrodisiac?

Beetroots are nature’s own version of Viagra.  It’s believed to be a natural aphrodisiac since the Roman times and its reputation as one never wavered even up to today.

Before, the walls of brothels in Pompeii were adorned with this root vegetable along with paintings of carnal scenes.  More concrete artifacts of beetroots were escavated in Pompeii like seeds and murals of Romans drinking “red win” may have been shown they were drinking beetroot juice instead.

There many evidence that show beets have been believed to be a love food.  Today, this premise is supported by scientific evidence.

Beetroots are indeed food that stimulates sexual excitement because it has lots of boron, a mineral that plays a significant role in the production of sex hormones in humans.

And because it has betaine, a substance that relaxes the mind, and tryptophan which contributes to a sense of well-being, beets can very well get you “in the mood.”
